Important information about IRA contribution limits. Your contributions to an IRA are subject to annual limits imposed by the Internal Revenue Code, which may change for future years. (The limits do not apply to rollover contributions, and higher limits apply to employee contributions to a SIMPLE IRA plan offered through an employer.) You should ensure that the automatic contributions you request are within those annual limits for this year, and you should review your automatic contributions at the end of each year to be sure you continue to be eligible and to review the applicable limits for the next year. Additional information, including the limits for the current year, is available on our website for IRAs and Roth IRAs. To more fully understand the tax and planning considerations, including laws specific to your state, you should consult a tax adviser. To speak with a Mutual of America representative, please contact your local Regional Office or call .

Mutual of America's IRAs are individual variable annuity contracts and are suitable for long-term investing, particularly for retirement savings.

Upon redemption, you could receive more or less than the principal amount invested. A variable annuity contract provides no additional tax-deferred treatment of benefits beyond the treatment provided to any qualified retirement plan or IRA by applicable tax law. You should consider a variable annuity contract’s other features before making a decision. Form IRA-2004 or applicable state variation.
